Responding To Total Tooth Loss With Implant Dentures

Advanced or total tooth loss can feel insurmountable, but through modern prosthetic dental treatment, our Katy, TX dental office can help you see amazing improvements to your smile and oral health. For people who are in need of dentures, we can provide implant-held restorations that stay comfortable, and offer real functional support. With as few as four implant posts, we can make sure that your denture remains in place, and is stable enough to trust with biting and chewing. Your restoration will also help you by stimulating your jawbone, which leads to the delivery of minerals and nutrients that keep the bone healthy. In addition to helping those who have not responded to their tooth loss, this  modern solution can benefit people who have grown frustrated with loose dentures. (more…)

TMJ Treatment Can Make Eating And Speaking More Comfortable

Going through the motions of a typical day can become more frustrating, and decidedly less comfortable, when you have TMJ disorder.

Show Off A Better Smile After Treatment With Invisalign

Having noticeable gaps in your smile, or teeth that look crooked because they overlap, can hurt your confidence in your overall appearance. People with poor dental alignment sometimes choose to hide their smile, and try to avoid showing their teeth while speaking because they are uncomfortable with the way they look. Because people sometimes assume that metal braces are the only treatment option available to them, they can be reluctant to look into orthodontic work because they worry about how these appliances might affect their daily experiences. At our Katy, TX dental office, we can help you enjoy a better smile by providing Invisalign aligners.

A Dental Implant Can Give You Confidence In Your Prosthetic

While tooth loss can be a frustrating and embarrassing problem, modern prosthetic treatment can give you back your confidence in your smile. At our Katy, TX dental office, we can restore your smile by replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant-held restoration. An implant effectively takes up the role of a tooth root in its support of a lifelike dental crown. Because of this added support, you can have an easier time biting and chewing, while also feeling more comfortable when you speak and laugh. Dental implants also help you by creating stimulation in your jawbone that keeps the bone healthy. It should be noted that implants are capable of holding larger restorations in addition to single-tooth restorations. (more…)

A Bad Bite Can Lead To Pain, And Tooth Problems

Can an action as simple as biting and chewing really create oral health problems for you? If you are affected by a poor bite function, you may be unaware of how much strain you put on your jaw joints and muscles every time you perform these routine tasks.

At our Katy, TX dental practice, we can help you by analyzing your bite, and looking for imbalances that should be corrected. Doing this work can improve your quality of life, and help you avoid dental problems in the future. (more…)
